Molbog-Mendoza: Get glowing skin with Korean facial

THESE days, a lot Filipinos have been hooked to anything Korean - from Koreanovela and Korean-pop to beauty products.

There is nothing surprising about it, anyway. Their rich culture as well as the kind of entertainment and products they offer us are truly great.

In the local beauty industry, one treatment has been introduced by renowned beauty guru April Kaye Garino of Kayesthetics.

I am pretty sure that you, too, have noticed the gorgeous-looking skin of Koreans. In fact, no matter how close they are to the camera, you can really observe their supple and glowing skin. Thus, Kaye made sure that Filipinos will be able to experience how it feels like to have such by offering Korean facial.

Here is my interview with her. Read on to learn more why I am personally loving this new procedure:

FN: What makes Korean facial different from the other facial procedures?

Kaye: Usual or regular facials include steam machine & pricking pimples (some practices may not be safe) that Korean facial doesn't usually do.

A Korean facial could be divided into four broad categories: cleansing, massage, masks, and the application of ampoules and creams. Ours include 9 to 11-step process!

It is basically a more nourishing way of cleansing and topping up of legit Korean products using different massage motions for a more relaxing experience while making the products absorb more into the skin!

It is also painless! The experience is such a hit as it its very relaxing and once done, the skin is clearer, more plump, softer and looks healthier!

FN: What’s the difference between the basic and premium?

Kaye: Our basic Korean facial customizes products to fit client's skin needs.

It focuses on the areas of the face alone.

Our premium Korean facial, on the other hand, includes the techniques and products for the face and Décolleté care!

The décolleté is one of the most neglected and overlooked areas of the body, especially when it comes to protection from the elements, beauty rituals, strengthening the muscles, massage and even stretching.

With our technique, the area can be revived with very unique relaxing massage that drains toxins.

The premium ones also include stem cell-based vials and ampules of choice depending on skin concerns!

You'll definitely be our VIP beauty with this one!

Both includes proper understanding the skin and its needs to customize products and techniques.

FN: What are its benefits?

Kaye: Koreans as we know have been very keen in skin care. This is applied in our Korean facials: the use of good skin care products and facials massage. These is best way to firm and help aging concerns.

Our special Korean Facial massage helps the circulation of blood, excretes toxins, and stimulates the production of collagen to help skin become smoother and healthier

Massage creates the heat that helps the products from creams, lotions, vials and ampules to nourish the skin from within.

FN: How do you customize each Korean facial?

Kaye: Each Korean Facial are customized according to our assessment and client's goals. So we meet halfway and suggest best ways we can address their concerns.

Personally, I have tried the premium one, and opted for the anti-aging stem cell-based vial and ampule. I must admit, the treatment is so relaxing and once you get out of the clinic, you will feel totally fresh. I must commend Kaye’s hands as well for giving me such a calming massage.

By the way, the premium one costs P1,500, while the regular one can already be enjoyed for only P750.
